Loceryl is a medication used to treat mild to moderate fungal infections. It is available as lacquer and is designed to combat infections that develop on the tips and sides of fingernails and toenails.
The active ingredient is amorolfine, an antifungal medicine. It forces holes into fungal cell membranes, causing their contents to spill out, in turn helping your body to clear the infection.
Loceryl is easy to apply, being painted directly onto the nail. It is also water and soap-resistant.
The lacquer comes in a 3ml bottle, which is approximately three months' supply. You should always follow the instructions of your doctor as well as those detailed in the patient leaflet. A summary of the instructions is as follows:
You should wait at least ten minutes after the application before you use any cosmetic nail polish. Do not apply artificial nails to the treated areas for the duration of the treatment.
To fully clear the infection, treatment can take between 3 and 6 months for fingernails and 6 to 12 months for toenails. The duration depends on the severity of the infection and the size of the nail infected. To determine how long you should use Loceryl, please consult your doctor.
There are several treatments which have the same active ingredient as Loceryl, such as Curanail, Locetar and Odenil. These have the same dosage as Loceryl and are generic medications which work the same way and are just as effective.
Medications with lower dosages or other over-the-counter compounds usually have more moderate effectiveness than Loceryl, as do "home remedies". Home remedies are ineffective in most cases as they do not treat the fungal infection directly and are often purely cosmetic.
Loceryl is a very user-friendly medication, and it is unlikely that you will experience side effects. However, some of the most commonly reported side effects include broken/brittle nails and nail discolouration.
In rare cases, allergic reactions (such as contact dermatitis, itching and blistering) have been reported. If you experience an allergic reaction or any other side effect, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.
Loceryl is not known to interact with any other medicines. However, you should always tell your doctor or pharmacist about any other medications you are taking to ensure Loceryl is suitable. When using this treatment, you should follow the below advice:
